got big problems using kernel 2.6.2 and the 5336 driver.

after compiling the kernel i emerged the nvidia drivers.
but when i start the x-server i got bad hungups which cause serious system damage. got to use ldconfig for setting the deps again and my XF86Config got some bogus char on beginning and end of file. (vim tells me that

xserver works with the nv driver, but i want speed

dmesg | grep nvidia reveals:

nvidia: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.
nvidia: no version magic, tainting kernel.
nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
0: nvidia: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-5336 Wed Jan 14 18:29:26 PST 2004

my xfreelog from the hungup:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
